Genealogy Research

Ancestor List for Ed Whitten ahnenlist
This page isn't linked because it contains more private information than the tree view above. You need to be on Ed's Trusted List to access it. Please login.

Compact Family Tree
This alternative tree view is packed with eight generations — up to 254 ancestors — along with birth and death dates and locations. The downside is that it's not a conventional tree format; it may take a couple minutes to orient yourself.

Descendants descendants
This view isn't linked because it contains private information.

DNA Ancestors and DNA Descendants DNA view
Genetic genealogy is the new frontier. Our two DNA views are designed to help you use genetic testing to confirm and expand Ed's genealogy. The DNA Ancestors page shows the specific ancestors from whom Ed gets his Y chromosome and mitochondrial DNA. Especially helpful for some serious genetic genealogists is the inheritance pattern for Ed's X chromosome, also shown here. The DNA Descendants link isn't active for privacy reasons.

DNA Ancestor Confirmation Aid check mark
This tool helps you take things a step beyond the DNA Ancestors and DNA Descendants views. The ambitious goal: scientific confirmation of each parent-child relationship in Ed's tree. This is still fairly complex. WikiTree is working on tools that will make it simpler.

Family Group Sheet family group sheet
This page illustrates nuclear families based on marriages. It's especially handy when someone had children from more than one marriage. Ed's Family Group Sheet is not linked for privacy reasons.

Global Family Reunion Connection
This is a special tool associated with the Global Family Reunion being planned for this June. It enables you to see Ed's connection to AJ Jacobs, the organizer of the reunion. Note that the Connection Finder includes relationships through marriage, so it is not a genealogical cousin calculator like our Relationship Finder.

Images of Ed photos
Here are photographs and source images for Ed. They are not linked for privacy reasons.

Index of Whittens
This page shows all the Whittens on WikiTree. It's useful for genealogists with an interest in the surname that goes beyond Ed. There are a variety of connected tools, such as Whitten DNA Connections and WHITTEN G2G.

Printer-Friendly Tree printable tree
This view parallels the pedigree chart above but it is optimized for printing. It can be used as a fill-in-the-blanks form at a family gathering. It is not linked here because it contains private information.

Profile of Ed
The profile page is the central place for organizing and viewing information and sources on an individual. This tree & tools page is a supplement to it. Whenever you see Ed's name on WikiTree (and ideally, elsewhere on the Internet!) it will be linked to the profile at http://www.WikiTree.com/wiki/Whitten-3 where Whitten-3 is Ed's unique WikiTree ID. Since the profile is private you would see significantly more information if you login and join the Trusted List.

Relationship Finder Find Relationship
Enter Whitten-3 and any other WikiTree ID to find the genealogical relationship between Ed and the other person. It will name the relationship, e.g. "third cousin twice removed," and show the trail of connections to a common ancestor. Although not everyone on WikiTree shares common ancestors, finding and connecting them is our ultimate goal.

Shareable Family Tree shareable tree
This is a family tree page for Ed that is designed for sharing on Facebook, Google+, Twitter, etc. Copy and paste the URL http://www.WikiTree.com/treewidget/Whitten-3/4 into your favorite social network.

Surnames surnames
The surnames page is a quick reference sheet that displays seven generations of Ed's family names. Many members share its URL http://www.WikiTree.com/treewidget/Whitten-3/10 via e-mail, e.g. with a DNA match to ask if the other person recognizes a surname.

WikiTree Tools

Here are additional tools to help genealogists collaborate on WikiTree to grow Ed's family history.

Activity Feed
Here you can view the additions and changes that WikiTree members have made to Ed's profile so far. Login to access the feed.

Edit Profile and Relationships edit
Ed's edit page is the central location for adding information and correcting mistakes. Is there anything you can add or improve upon? Since you're not logged-in yet you can't make changes directly. Contact the profile managers. Please don't go away without giving us your information and sources. Thank you!

Privacy Setting privacy
You'll notice colored privacy icons in search results, the Whitten surname index, etc. The yellow dot for Ed indicates that his profile is Private with a Public Biography and Family Tree. Only the profile manager can edit this setting.

Tests of Ed's DNA
If Ed's DNA (not a family member's or descendant's DNA) has been tested for genealogical purposes the test or tests should be selected here. This will automatically create connections on the profiles of Ed's relatives where the test may be useful for confirming relationships. It's very valuable for advanced genealogy. To add tests you need to be on Ed's Trusted List.


Here are ways to connect and communicate with genealogists regarding Ed's profile, especially if you're unable to collaborate directly using the WikiTree Tools above.

Ask a Question about Ed
WikiTree's Genealogist-to-Genealogist (G2G) Forum is where genealogists help each other. If you have a question about Ed and would like to seek help from the wider community — not just Ed's friends and family — post it here.  

Comment on Profile Message Board
Ed's profile, like all WikiTree profiles, has a section for public comments. This is the best place to put anything you'd like seen by all genealogists who are interested in Ed. Profile managers are alerted to new comments via e-mail, everyone on the Trusted List will see a notice about it in their activity feeds, and people who visit Ed's profile in the future will see your comment. You will need to login to post.

Any image uploaded to WikiTree can be sent as a free e-card, including photos of Ed or scans of vintage postcards. An e-card can be a great way to tell a genealogist or family member about what's here.

Privacy Take-Down Request Form
If you are Ed or officially represent him and the profile manager refuses to remove personal information use this form.

Private Message — Directly Contact Profile Manager private message
Here you can send a private message to a Wiki Genealogist managing Ed's profile. If there are multiple managers or genealogists involved, you will need to send separate messages. Unless your information is sensitive it's better to post a public comment. Login to post.

Trusted List Request Form
If you're a family member or descendant please join the Trusted List. This will you give you full access to view, follow, and edit Ed's information on WikiTree. This is especially important since the profile is private. You will need to login first.

If you have sourced information about Ed, the WikiTree community thanks you in advance for not leaving here without sharing it. :-) We are on a mission to connect the human family on one free yet reliable and privacy-controlled tree. Although we will never be finished, we make amazing progress every day because tens of thousands of good genealogists are willing to help.
